Dust in the Wind
(Hou Hsiao-hsien, Taiwan, 1987) 111 minutes PG

Dust in the Wind has been called ‘the perfect Hou film and the perfect New [Taiwanese] Cinema film’ by Hou expert James Udden, and it remains one of the director's most beloved and admired works. A miracle of humane observation and formal perfection – the film's train sequences have been justly celebrated – Dust is a quiet heartbreaker about a young man and woman who quit high school and leave their hillside mining village for Taipei. (The film proved popular enough to transform this mountainside community into a pilgrimage site for Taiwanese tourists nostalgic for the past.) Instead of a better life, the two young lovers drift in the inhospitable city – she as a seamstress, he as a delivery boy – and their relationship is further tested when he goes off to do his compulsory military service. Measured and melancholic, Dust in the Wind ‘consolidates Hou Hsiao-hsien's reputation as Taiwan's leading humanist director’ (Alan Stanbrook). - TIFF Cinematheque.
